I recently got the Galactic program (version 2.4c), it's great! However, I've been downloading sector data and the files are have a .SAR file extension. I have been unable to find any documentation with the program to explain what to do with these, and I haven't found any .SAR files already in the Galactic directory structure to try and figure out where they go.

Anyone know?

Thanks,
Brian

From the manual:
</font><blockquote>code:</font><hr /><pre style="font-size:x-small; font-family: monospace;">[Q] I'm working on a new galaxy, and I'd like to send it to a
friend. What should I do?

[A] Use the &quot;X&quot; key at the galaxy menu to export your galaxy,
putting it into a &quot;.gar&quot; (galaxy archive) file. Using the &quot;X&quot;
key at the galaxy map will export a sector to a &quot;.sar&quot; (sector
archive) file. Using the &quot;I&quot; key at either map will allow for
the importing of these files. </pre>[/QUOTE]

There are lots of information in the manual.

When starting the program, select "About this Program" instead of directly selecting "Starmaps".

Thanks! I actually did read most of the text files, but I missed that entry.
